This week we’re on mission with Project Patina. Our venerable Vitello Calf Viberg collaborations are coming to the front lines, fully restocked for the battle of patina glory. This special ops tannage is designed to evolve to a dramatic degree with its vegetable tanned and dyed recipe that yields a luxurious quality to naturally supple calfskin hides. The grain of the skins is slightly sanded for a matte appearance that will become character rich as it absorbs the elements to which it is exposed. While presenting a sophisticated look that shines up when conditioned and dulls down when worn once again, this leather is ready for combat as a full-grain and full-weight calfskin that retains its age gracefully for a unique and layered quality.
In cleanly designed make-ups, we utilize the patina heavy Vitello Calf leather that results in timeless styles destined to evolve for the cultured gent who subtly communicates his rank to the world with class and character. Enjoy another foundational footwear realization that once again demonstrates design and production all wrapped into an exclusive and authentic enterprise by Viberg and Division Road. So, for those looking to engage in a truly progressive project by embracing excursions that will leave their mark, grab one of our Vitello Calf collaborations in various style formats that disguise their distinct nature until revealed by the road ahead.
The Viberg x Division Road Fango Vitello Calf Side Zip Boot fuses elements of military and riding boots to create yet another old-souled icon. This goodyear welted make-up utilizes the sleekly shaped 2050 Last, nickel Lampo zipper, and a natural flat welt and midsole atop a Dainite Sole to exude an urban edge to a battle-ready built for the moto-ready maverick. As a trailblazer equally matched for the shifty sheriff or moralistic miscreant, the patina ready Fango Vitello Calf Side Zip will record its escapades with elegance as it begins as a light taupe that transforms and darkens as the story progresses.
The Viberg x Division Road Noir Vitello Calf Service Boot is an international raven on a sophisticated style assignment. This stitchdown make-up has versatile and rare assets like the accommodating low profiled 1035 Last, gunmetal eyelets, brogue and pinked cap toe, and a washed black midsole atop a Ridgeway sole to enable espionage-ready elegance with tough tonal details ready to jump into duty. From black tie events to dangerous chases, the Noir Vitello Calf Service Boot comes in a matte black leather that will dramatically change its tone and texture for a sexy style sleuth finish furthered by its late-night exploits.
